educators feel about giving teachers firearms training? bob hinky is a principal at mountain crest high school. how do you feel about this? >> well, i think the teachers have that right and so i feel like it's okay, but i have some things i'm very concerned about. i personally wouldn't carry a gun or get a concealed weapon myself. the concerns i have is the concealed weapons, i have a friend who just received his a couple of years ago and through the training, they never used a gun and had a gun in the class. i worry about the training that they have to actually fire the firearm and to use it. without endangering others as well. so there things i'm concerned about, having a concealed weapon on campus of course is -- we have strict policies that relate to that to ensure everyone is safe and a teacher if they violated that policy because they don't want to put others at risk either. >> what about having the weapon in school and having a kid possibly have access to it. that opens the door for accidents. >> absolutely. that's one of the concerns. so our policy is that it has to be concealed

they have college educations many of them. they certainly have high school educations, and they need to be able to have some kind of legal status that allows them at least to work until they can decide if they want to do something -- go back to their home country or stay here and work in a legal way, so i think there are ways that we can take a little bit at a time. i think border security is high on everyone's agenda, as is some kind of guest worker program. so i think that it is a priority. i have been in on many of the discussions, and it's a hard issue, but it's one that has to be addressed. we got several hard issues right now, luke. >> i'm sure you'll be playing a role on the outside when your senate term expires on immigration. senator kay bailey hutchison, thank you so much for joining us, we appreciate it. >> thank you, luke. >>> mark your calendars, south carolina is the place to be in 2014. get those reservations. three marquee races in a state that's known for nasty politicking. we can't wait. your palmetto preview is next. this is "andrea mitchell reports" only on msnbc.
